5 Benefits of Self-Care

Hey girl! Did you know practicing self-care is one of the most important things you can do for yourself? Often times, we get busy with life and tend to forget to slowdown, recharge and take care of ourself. 

We're going to share 5 benefits of self-care and why it's important to put yourself first!

1. Improve your physical health

The most important part of self-care is taking care of your body and paying attention to your needs. This can look like exercising, drinking water, getting enough sleep, taking your vitamins, or limiting unhealthy foods.

3. Boost your self-esteem & confidence

Prioritizing self-care can help improve your self-esteem and confidence. You can do this by being kind to yourself. Whether it's through your thoughts, how you talk to yourself or how you view yourself.  The mind is a powerful thing, so take some time to say nice things to yourself.

4. Protects your mental health

This can look like paying more attention to how things or people make you feel, your thoughts & feelings and overall phycological well-being. Practice saying "no" to things you don't want to do or make you feel uncomfortable.

Remember, self-care is not a substitute for getting professional help, but it can help prevent things from getting worse.
